Faisalabad City Govt to ink accord with Singapore on solid waste treatment

FAISALABAD – A delegation of senior officers of the Faisalabad City Government left for Singapore to sign an agreement with Singaporean authorities for the installation of a solid waste treatment plant in the district.
The delegation comprises Executive District Officer (Revenue) Liaqat Ali Chattha, Executive District Officer (Solid Waste) Liaqat Ali, Road Transport Authority Secretary Mohsin Rasheed and District Officer (Planning) Mehar Ramzan.
The group members will inspect a number of solid waste treatment plants and study various aspects of their functioning.
The delegation will sign an agreement with a Singaporean company for the installation of a plant to dispose of tons of the waste produced by the industrial city on daily basis. The plant that will be installed at Jarranwala Road will recycle the waste into usable items or material.
The most significant feature of the plant is that the heaps of the rubbish piled at various locations of the city will disappear. Apart from giving a cleaner look to the city, it will help reduce the spread of hepatitis that has the highest ratio in Faisalabad owing to environmental pollution.
The government that is spending millions of rupees on disposing the rubbish will instead earn money from this project because as per the proposed agreement, the Singaporean company will buy the waste from the city government to run their recycling process.
